I don't see it. I've asked for someone else to take a look.

Any new processes in Task Manager?

Strange. I don't see anything either.

Have you added anything new to the computer?

I couldnt show a picture because when I rebooted it was not there any more :) just why it was there in the first place is the mystifying thing,the only thing I had added to my computer was the webcam at Kruger national park in South Africa ....thinking about how it looked ....it was just like the icon when I had dial up,but that was some time ago and Ive never had it on this computer...the main thing is it has gone ...will wait to see if it returns ...thanks to you all for replying (y)
